  • Holy Guacamole Paid dues Again LOL

    Well today was fun ! Left my favorite "Copper Box"at my other Shop 15 Miles away Sooo Had to "Improvise" Which Meant Sweating in a Replacement Shower Valve With A 30 Year old Roll of "95/5" Pot of old Nokrode , Fittings Black as the inside of a COW ! and a 6" Strip of Used sand Cloth ...I forgot How much heat That takes ... Nursing a Little Burn Also :-(

    This is what you Make a Job applicant Do that you DO NOT want to hire LOL ...

    Guess I am Spoiled By the "good Stuff" ...Dave

      I feel ya. I have said before that anybody can plumb if you have the proper tools, fittings and consumables. What separates the men from the boys is doing proper plumbing without the above. I had to rotate a RPZ today. It was installed by plant mechanics using pro-press. Unfortunately, they put it in upside down. I was able to get it done by cutting a lock off a cabinet in an abandoned boiler room. Jackpot! Probably 2-3000 dollars in copper fittings. I can't take all the credit, Mr. Boltcutter did most of the work. Sometimes creative can be knowing where to look.

          welcome to california ben

          just think come jan. 1st. 2010, most brass used for potable water will be illegal due to lead. this includes faucets, fittings, anything that has the potential that you'll be drinking from.

          the nokorode i use to love has been illegal for close to 20 years.

          unless it's water soluble, you can't use it for any potable water applications.

            "just think come jan. 1st. 2010, most brass used for potable water will be illegal due to lead. this includes faucets, fittings, anything that has the potential that you'll be drinking from." (don't know how to do the "quote" thing yet, I'm still new to this)

            I thought most valves were made out of brass, can you not use those after jan. 1st?...or are they bronze?

                Thanks to Obama's new plumbing Zar , all faucets and shower valves will be Rubbermaid in 2010
                I can build anything You want , if you draw a picture of it , on the back of a big enough check .

                    Nokorode has different formulations now that allow us to use it.
